Soul Singer Adele Covers Cheryl Cole’s ‘Promise This’ – this is how it should be done :-)

Usually I get a bit anxious when I hear that someone has covered a certain track, but the talented soul singer Adele, whose latest album ‘21’ is said to dominate the UK albums chart on Sunday, recently performed a cover of Cheryl Cole’s number one hit ‘Promise This on BBC Radio 1′s Live Lounge and surely did this song huge justice. She took the track, totally re-created it and made it her own…this is how it should be done Cheryl! It’s not right when someone can sing your own song better than you but this is exactly what has taken place with this number. I definitely prefer this stripped down, piano-lead version, and Adele’s harmonious and blissful voice flows wonderfully over the melody. This cover version is beautiful, soulful and smooth, and is in huge contrast to the heavy bumping original version from Cheryl. Thanks Adele 🙂
